Cold February

February 17, 2024 — t̷h̷e̷8̷w̷o̷o̷d̷c̷u̷t̷t̷e̷r̷

Sure has been chilly. Worse yet out on my ass because of surly prideful people, I was just tired. Gaining strength though and walking tall.

I recently acquired a slightly older Lenovo ThinkPad. I'm enjoying that quite a lot. More to come about that I'm sure. Sad that I put the sim card adapter in the tray back in the slot, just destroyed any chance of using sim card now. I figured I was going to have to buy a mother board.

I found one, it wasn't cheap, but it wasn't weak or really expensive. I'm waiting for an injury and highly considering going to work once I can lift with my legs again. No work in tecnology for me, unless ... I thought about a printing shop; we'll see when we get where, there,

I'm once again holding off on the python exercising and gatherin knowledge and thoughtfulness about various security and abstract concepts. I really don't know but I have a bad week almost there a bit ago and recovering this time is going okay. I'll write again, ciao=

New for this young year

January 26, 2024 — t̷h̷e̷8̷w̷o̷o̷d̷c̷u̷t̷t̷e̷r̷

Greetings Internet People. I thought I would write a post here now about new stuff that's happened-ning.

So that music site project I was talking about in the last post, it's much nice now! You can check it out here: MusicPlace.Vip. I kept the same theme of top level domain (the ".vip") as my other favorite domain name "TooFast.vip" (which is my main XMPP server host). I originally thought of just using a subdomain, as "musicplace.toofast.vip", but was very attracted to the appearance of "MusicPlace.vip" and it was only about 7 dollars Canadian. So over the winter holidays, xmas season, I been occasionally working on this flask application, in part to learn flask web application framework using python language, but also because I had a motivation and that was to be able to share music links on XMPP chats that are not rewritten filenames to some bullcrap non-human readable hash string, and are from a creative origin. The idea was that if I'm playing my music in my VLC or Poweramp app while out and about and I find a cool track in my same collection, as on phone as on server, that instead of uploading the file as it is and it get renamed to aerjnoiub98eronbo.flac, I want that filename to show what the file is! Sometimes people don't want to download crap that has no readable name, as well sometimes people want to keep their file they downloaded, so if I shared it it was for them to listen to sure, but the option to keep it is now successful because going through their files they'll find a file that's named a way they can know wtf it is. Makes sense right? But XMPP and some of the developers for client software and such have a different political idea of how HTTP upload file shares should work. Not many people believe that uploads are away of sharing files, they're supposed to be inline images, or something really web 3.0 bullshit. I find that XMPP is losing it's original web chat spirit because of these "phone fags" as some people would call them, that only think in their development and software progression like a phone user. Sad, really, cuz I am oldschool about web stuff, and I found a lot of value in the way things used to be but see it actively unable to exist anymore. I guess such is life.

So "MusicPlace.vip" the file, or the "/musiclist", is locked by a super secret password, and at this time it is really only myself that gets to use that as I recently changed the passwd and probably will somewhat often. I wanted also to be able to share my music files, which a lot of them are in fact paid for and HQ audio, but I didn't like it as an open public webserver directory as I'm not sure but I don't think that's legal, I really don't know becacuse I cannot digest terms + services legal jargon, who reads that stuff anyways? NOBODY! So but I may have heard it's not legal or something, I don't really believe that because as I said that the purpose is to share them the only available way to XMPP chat. I did due diligence, and whatever.

I am really stoked about the CSS (styles) though, it seems I've created a theme with it too because I've created a subdomain (another simpler flask project inside the musicplace project) that is my place to post a public prayer. I follow the Christian faith. I thought of this as a cool way to praise the Lord. It also uses a similar almost same CSS theme, you can view that at prayers.musicplace.vip. It is not finished yet.

Another thing, I suppose I wouldn't be proud of, is a bullshit saga going on that I'm making the most of with humour and no fucks given, is a saga where I was originally banished back to an XMPP group chat I thoroughly hate and in such banishment, which not a nice thing to do, I suppose I've seized the opportunity to shit all over that chat and do and say whatever the hell I want cuz fuck you. That's because they all did an offence to me and already hate me and think bads things about me so I am indeed being a plague and don't care, you cannot nor will not be able to make me care. LoL.. Stubborn, I know, but in my eyes it's worth the hilarity it causes sometimes and I should learn to care less about what internet people have to say, not in the way that it creates more problems for folks, just that I have been known to get offended. People don't care to unnofffend me once offending me and I cry a lot because of this, and so, I am now perpetually full retard until enough of my JIDs are banned I feel successful.

So yea, that's the happening today for recently. I am enjoying flask, because I enjoy pythons, and the creative juices are a flowing! If you want the password for the music app, only authorized people are allowed to ask me on XMPP as my JID is, you will have to figure that out. I'm not giving it out publicly anymore. So on this day it is good to be alive and thank God for all things provided, he is much our true captain and leader and rememberig Him is loving Him who loves us. pEAcE

I wonder now what now happening, how come, what for?

January 07, 2024 — t̷h̷e̷8̷w̷o̷o̷d̷c̷u̷t̷t̷e̷r̷

Heya internet. Whappens moew?

I wear my sunglasses at winter...

So this past 2 days has been gruelling, back breaking, barely withstandable labour to do a handful of things. I am basically going to try to make a web community under the pirate flag of THE ARMADA, do not repeat that without using all capitals, out of respect for the fallen comrades, thanks, but in making this community again it requires a code place. I mean a place to put the code, that we work on. Fun part about gitea is it has communities for things like this. When I first tried to make this community I also tried the google shit, that supposed business email, groups, etc shit, and I say shit because just like amazon I can't imagine how such a terrible corporation is s filthy rich.. Anyways. So I thought this time I would make a mail server on my Network Throughput I/O domain Packets.cc .. Anyways, and I found a thing, I haven't seen it yet, but in debian repositories mailman3-web (i think it was). I guess it uses a thing called HyperKitty and Django for a web app that handles mail? I'm willing to give it a try!

As well, I'm not sure why I'm struggling to understand and deal with figuring out how the F to host a uWSGI, or any WSGI, server for proxying my https from my FLASK PROJECT!! 😄😄😄😄 Yes, I am VERY much happy that I am learning a new, and in my opinion possibly better than Laravel, web application framework. I'm pretty sure very very few people know one thing about me, and that is that I really enjoy web applications and creating them gives me a helluva a good feeling when confronted with all the ideas I get for building web apps. This is truly what I was destined to do I think but anyways, so, I'm really stoked about Flask, and Pythons!

It is questionable whether the page is or will be operational, but MUSICPLACE.Vip and JUST TODAY! I managed to figure out how uWSGI works, at least enough that it's rendering the CSS files. It's a work in progress though, and I'm not giving out the password until it's stable. Afterwards I might ask a couple of folks if they want to poke it, meaning with a pen, just to know I build my flask app sturdy.

I shall return for more EPIC POST! GIT ER DRUNK, BAMBOOZLE HER, THEN PARTY AT MY POST! LoL I just made that up, stupid, I know.

PLUS: As for XMPP, which I fail to properly rage quit, and I am permanently a slave to, I discovered that one of my new years resolutions for 2024 will be that if I'm going to always be a strange and weird XMPP server operator, I might as well be better at it. Blimey trolls! OH AND ONE MORE THING: I shall be doing CSS/layout type modifications to the8woodcutter.sh, to make it actually worth visiting. There's a slight chance that this intention gets lost in the abyss of my many missions but let's propose it happens, and you might love the changes when they come, bon voyage! 😵

My Desktop Today

November 12, 2023 — t̷h̷e̷8̷w̷o̷o̷d̷c̷u̷t̷t̷e̷r̷

Greetings people of internet!

If I may show you my awesome looking OpenSUSE Linux desktop, may you be in awe at the awesome look it is :D It uses xfce4 desktop environment, and if you inspect the second image you'll see more about my system ^^

I made the background image graphic art myself, here it is:

toofast.in.the.park.png

By the way, I wish I knew who the artist was of this, but this is the original image:

cool.evening.apartment.lot.walk.png

I hope you enjoy the art I post on here. I am once in a while improving all my stuff, or at the least the important stuff. So look out for some new improvements coming for TooFast.vip in terms of styles, as well as for The8Woodcutter.sh, namely the front page!

Hello there! I was working on trying to put an archlinux with blackarch repos, basically a red team or pentesting OS on encrypted USB, as is the smart way of things, and it failed on me every which way. I had wasted 2 days, of course I was lazy and doing a multitude of stuff online, and I swear the blackarch ISO / installer is cursed ...

Of course that wasn't the only way I attempted (wasting my time lol) to try to make a bootable USB encrypted with blackarch pacakges. In case you didn't know, you can install archlinux to another block device using just a running archlinux by installing pacman -S arch-install-scripts, and later you can use blackarch repository. For stuff like this is why ArchLinux is desirable and very very handy. However what ended up being the result was this pleasant error after my USB completely effen died:

burnt.usb.jpg

LoL .. This was very unpleasant because some already very very unpleasant stuff happened before I had to shut the OS down, then this to create a firmament that I shall NOT have USB stick OS for plugging network ports with mischief... ... God had a message for me apparently LOL! Also, if that's not pleasant as daisies, I had downloaded the full Kali (22GB worth) and the main installer ISOs and neither of them would work because of another very pleasant error I have when secure boot is forced but impossible or something? As my laptop firmware is semi-soft-bricked I'm pretty sure LOL.. Such is this life of keyboard I found it comical so I decided to sing a song and make some art:

boss4.jpg

Lastly I thought I would present the internet with a tiny morsel of news: I have gotten back on my feet thanks to an old friend. It was fkn COLD and I was without a place to go. For now I am back on the MISSIONZ
HACK THE PLANET! ... lol jks 😸

THIS NEWS IS NULL:
Feel free to sign up for an XMPP account somewhere (I do not host XMPP for other users) and then try out my customized Movim instance:

Tricks for Movim on Prosody XMPP Server

September 24, 2023 — t̷h̷e̷8̷w̷o̷o̷d̷c̷u̷t̷t̷e̷r̷

So I've been hosting my kustom kolorz modified instance of Movim (main original up to date site) on TooFast.vip for a few weeks again and it's a joy, as I've chamged the CSS ever so nicely, however since when I reiterated this recently I have had a few interesting bugs, or things that did not work as expected. The last time I hosted movim (which was also the first time) was last year around about this time and I disabled it because literally nobody used it. I decided to host it again because I still really enjoy it but migrating to and learning ejabberd was painful and I lost interest, til recently.

What was the biggest thing that wasn't working, and please remember I am lazy and often preoccupied with IRL problems to be on the ball with these things, was my MUC (multi user chats) not re-appearing after a relog. This is really annoying because I have to manually load my chat list every login, but fortunately movim keeps you logged into the XMPP server if you have a cookie saved saying you haven't logged out (or invalidated the cookie). I suppose in order to actually log off your XMPP account on movim instances, you must manually hit the logout option, otherwise you'll be showing as online for a number of days then away for a number of days, a week or more. Which I find is kinda cool actually. BUT I found the module required for Prosody to allow movim world to reup the bookmarks you had open on other client programs and configured in your xmpp account. It is mod_bookmarks2 AS WELL it is useful to have, for example for server compliance, mod_cloud_inotify and mod_smacks.

mod_smacks
mod_cloud_notify
mod_bookmarks2

I posted this mostly for my own reference for next time, but it's cool if this helps others. I may or may not in the certainly not near future add custom PHP or Python based comments to this blog, if that interests anybody, but I find disqus kind of distasteful and clutter on here and I don't like it so we have not comments. I hope you enjoyed reading my weblog 😎 🍰
